CATARACT SURGERY

CATARACT SURGERY

Cataract surgery is a medical procedure performed to treat cataracts, which are the clouding of the natural lens in the eye. The lens of the eye is normally clear and transparent, but as people age, it can become progressively cloudy, leading to vision problems. Cataracts can cause blurred vision, difficulty seeing in low light, and can interfere with daily activities.View Video

MONOFOCAL LENS

A monofocal lens is a type of intraocular lens (IOL) used in cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. It is designed to provide clear vision at a single fixed focal point, typically set for either distance vision or near vision. Monofocal lenses have a constant focusing power and cannot adjust to different distances like the natural human lens.View Video

MULTIFOCAL LENS

A multifocal lens, also known as a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL), is a type of artificial lens used in cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. Unlike monofocal lenses, which have a fixed focal point set for either distance or near vision, multifocal lenses are designed to provide clear vision at multiple distances, typically allowing patients to see both near and distant objects without the need for glasses or contact lenses. enjoyment in the rest of your life!View Video

GLAUCOMA TREATMENT

GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can lead to damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. It is often characterized by increased intraocular pressure (intraocular pressure is the pressure inside the eye) and is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Glaucoma typically develops gradually and is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it can progress without noticeable symptoms until advanced stages. View Video

CAUSES & SYMPTOMS

Glaucoma is primarily caused by elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), which occurs when the aqueous humor (the clear fluid that circulates in the eye) does not drain properly or when the eye produces too much of it. The increased pressure can lead to damage of the optic nerve, which in turn can result in vision loss. While elevated intraocular pressure is a significant risk factor for glaucoma, the exact causes of the disease can vary. Glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it typically develops slowly and without noticeable symptoms in its early stages. Symptoms may include blurry vision, gradual loss of peripheral vision, tunnel vision, sudden or severe eye pain, and halos around lights. View Video

TREATMENT

The treatment of glaucoma aims to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in order to slow or prevent further damage to the optic nerve and preserve vision. The specific treatment plan for an individual with glaucoma depends on the type of glaucoma, the severity of the condition, and other factors. Treatments may include eye drops, surgery, laser therapy, combination treatment. View Video

PETER LOMBARD, MD

Education and Training

Valedictorian, U.S. Naval Academy Class of 1998, Annapolis, MD
Medical School: Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MDInternship and Residency: Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA

I was born in Guam, and after many years of schooling and military service that have taken me worldwide, I moved back to Guam in 2010. 

Ophthalmology is my career and passion.  I have been trained at the best hospitals in the U.S. under some of the most caring and talented physicians in the world, and I am humbled to use my skills and training to preserve and restore eye health in others, particularly on my island home of Guam.

I am the 3rd generation of physicians in my family.  My grandfather was a physician in Silver Springs, Maryland.  My father was also a Navy physician and retired in 2018 from “The Doctor’s Clinic” in Guam after nearly 40 years of serving Guam as a family medicine physician.

In my free time, you’ll find me on my bike, swimming, surfing, or running the trails.  I’m a cyclist, road triathlete, and Xterra triathlete and have competed in Guam, Saipan, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Hawaii, and Brazil.
